I have came to the conclusion that headlights work much better for me for cycling than handlebar-mounted lights. This is because:
- A headlamp illuminates where one is looking, not where the bike is turning towards.
- The angle under which the light falls on the trail is much improved. When handlebar-mounted light illuminates the trail, the holes and irregularities look bottomless, making it difficult to select a safe line.
Suppose I am considering buying a full-face helmet. Are there models, that are explicitly designed to have a light attached to them. I imagine some kind of rails on the side or in front or on the top.
Bonus question 1: recommended way to mount a conventional headlamp (one which people put on their heads) to a conventional helmet (skateboard-type or full-face)?
Bonus question 2: any lights, that are supposed to be mounted on the helmet, but their power supply to reside in the backpack?
